As hair-raising as a roller-coaster ride, First Drop skyrockets ZoŽ Sharp to the top of that exclusive list of suspense writers who are going places fast.
“Sharp’s aim is dead-on—STUNNING.”—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
After a tour of duty in the British Army, twenty-six year old Charlie Fox has excellent marksmanship and a sixth sense for danger. She also has an ex-lover, Sean, who runs a protection agency and makes her a business offer she can’t refuse: To go to the United States and look after the teenage son of a high-profile computer whiz.
“Today’s best action heroine.”—Lee Child
The assignment should have been a cakewalk. But that was before Charlie and her charge, Trey, visit a Florida amusement park and encounter armed kidnappers who are dead-set on getting their way—and taking Trey with them.
“Intense . . . a nail-biting chase.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer
The last thing anyone expected was a determined attempt on Trey’s life. But soon Charlie discovers that not only has Trey’s father gone missing, Sean and his entire bodyguard team have fallen off the map as well. Now it’s up to Charlie—alone in an unknown territory, with no one she can trust—to protect Trey, and herself, against all imaginable odds….before the enemy strikes again.
“THE MUST-READ HEROINE OF MYSTERY.”—KEN BRUEN
